Home Improvement Drills

I really don't like renovations to be done in the house especially when we are still staying in it.  But  no choice, I had to be around when they came and did it yesterday.   Yes, it was long overdue already, finally I decided to get it done over with, now my whose house is like "railway track"... wiring here and there... every corner... it is not a nice sight...

When they start drilling, I shuddered... wouldn't want to imagine the mess that the drilling caused...  but no choice, when they finished one part, I cleaned up... that made it easier in the end....

Actually I didn't want to do that, the worker suggested it... he said, "Give me the broom, let me sweep for you so that the dust won't be everywhere......."  Once he said that, I quickly took the broom and cleaned up...

Drilling time.... 
Messy time....
Dusty everywhere...
SOS!!!
HELP!!
As they worked, I cleaned as much as I could... 
Finally when they were done, I mopped the floor three times..
But I still could feel the dust under my feet....
Am I eccentric?
I guess I am.... 
I had a Good sleep last night... too exhausted already!

  2. Oh, a big headache, the knocking & drilling, just like last year when I renovate (extend) my kitchen. Worst part, everyday has to sweep the dust, mop the floor and next day repeat the same thing. Mine took one month plus to finish. Can you imagine?

  6. Yea, the whole house will become very dusty, it takes some effort and time to clean it off completely

  7. I am also very scared of having to fix things once moved in. I read somewhere that to keep vacuuming as the person drills so that the dust will not fly everywhere. Aircon for the bedroom?

    1. Yeah on and off we must do some renovations..

  12. aiyoh, i am just wondering will the workers curse you in heart, because you were cleaning while they were working.. it make me feel like this case: you go into a shop, you are browsing the clothes and the sales girl is following behind you, whatever you touched, she will want to rearrange them even she doesn't need to.. haha!! but probably i just think too much, the worker was indeed very considerate to ask for a broom from you :)

  16. I hate those renovation and dust. Usually those workers will use vacuum cleaner to vacuum the dust while they drill to minimise the dust flying around.

    And I understand the mopping process. I remember I mopped 3 times too when moved into my new home and yet still can feel the dust around. I also had a good night sleep that night. Lol.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands

UPHILL....

It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
